An island nation seeks workforce aid. Will the world respond?
About the video:
People who work in American tourism and hospitality jobs are truly suffering, because their industries shut down in the wake of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. They are bound to wonder not only when, but if, they will return to work. Such fear is magnified in places like Aruba. This island nation seeks workforce aid; most Arubans work in tourism and hospitality.
As an island nation seeks workforce aid: Some Arubans are running out of money; they are hungry, and need shelter.
Among the bold civic leaders on the island are Daniel Tecklenborg of CEDE Aruba and Bianca Peters of Island Impact. Daniel is working hard to feed and provide shelter to thousands of in-need Arubans; Bianca is helping to shape the post-COVID vision for a diversified economy and sustainable workforce.
